It sounds suspiciously like a credit card financing offer...And $10 off $50 isn't a great deal compared to many other credit card financing offers out there.

Could this be used with the $5 off $50 coupon as well? (which expires in a few days I think)

I did some research and it sounds like when you enter your birthday + last 4 SS# digits they are able to do a quick lookup and see if you're a deadbeat or a high roller and eith approve or not approve you

I did some more research. Avoid these guys like the plague. They are an intermediary between the customer and the merchant. If you return something and there's a problem or a billing/timing error BillMe keeps tacking on charges/fees and they tell you to take it up with the merchant. If I distill it down it sounds like it'll work IF, make sure you want to keep what you bought and pay the bill in full.

I have used Bill Me Later with Deep Discount quite a few times. They will charge you monthly just like a credit card... BUT interest is about 20%.

I also use Bill Me Later for a lot of Deep Discount purchases. I use it for orders under 50.00 since if you pay the whole amount no interest is charged.

I too use them but mostly for the DD 20% Off Sales.

If it helps mitigate a decision, they are accepted at alot of online vendors besides Amazon / Deep Discount as well.

So if you pay immediately, no problems? No more statements? IE. I buy $60 this week from Amazon and use them. They send me a bill for $60.00. I pay right away and don't hear from them again unless I buy something else?

BillMeLater is a fine company. It is an online credit account. No fees as long as you pay it off each month. Also, they often run promos like 90 days or 6 months same as cash which make it it easy to spread out a big purchase over a couple paychecks (I use it at J&R and B&H Photo - I have also used one year when I wanted to do the 20% off sale and did not have the cash before the end of the sale).I have used them for several years and had no problems.

I used them a few times at Deep Discount with no issues.

This coupon combined with the current TV and Foreign movie deal helped me catch up on some stuff in my wish list.

Picked up the Image version of And Then There Were None, Batman Beyond Season 1 &3 (already had 2) and Justice League Unlimited Season 2 for $37.61 total. I also got another $3.85 in promotional discounts, but I have no idea why. I was able to combine it with the $10 BML discount for my final total. Awesome deal.

Don't lose that bill. Late fee on a $50 purchase = $20!

You can always go to your account online and make a payment, if you are afraid you might forget when it comes due:

Thank you, OP.
